Who Died?


Published 1945


This was one of 6 "impact bulletins" released in 1945 for the 7th War Loan Drive. Written, introduced, and narrated by American novelist Betty Smith, author of "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn." Grimly answers the question "Who died?" From the Technique newspaper:  "I've just been told that over 3,000 of our American boys died in the first eleven days of the invasion of France. Who died? I'll tell you who died."
Description at National Archives: "Designed to sell war bonds, this picture consists of five dramatized sequences showing small boys in various roles. After each sequence a dead soldier is shown--representing the death of each of the boys. Requests the purchase of and retention of war bonds."
National Archives Identifier: 11823
